Soft Summer Sympathy


Sympathy cards are always my least favorite to make. A good friend's mother passed a couple of weeks ago so I needed to come up with a card. I originally stamped this image to make another card for SCS Inspiration Challenge # 175. I think it turned out well and my friend said she really liked it.

Recipe:
Stamps: Soft Summer, Brighter Tomorrow - SU
Paper: WW, Ballet Blue, Vellum
Ink: WW and Ballet Blue Craft
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder, Clear EP, Heat Tool, Nestabilities, MS Butterfly Punch, SU Flower Punch, Brads, Pearl Beads

Such a beautiful card, love your deep embossing and those pearls on your butterfly. This is the worst kind of card we have to make and this beauty will have brought lots of comfort Elizabeth. -x-

This is beautiful, Elizabeth. I love the colors and the vellum. So sorry you needed a card like this, but I'm sure it brought comfort.
